Collecting a Recipient's Name, Email Address, Etc.

How do I collect the recipient's name, email address, etc.?

This is done with product attributes (I'm referring to the normal product attributes that are assigned on the product's "Attributes" tab).

There are a several attributes you can add to the product to collect additional information. After checkout, the module looks for these attributes and collects the data from them (these are the attribute codes for the attributes; the parentheses indicate what type of attribute it can be):

for (text)
foremail (text)
sendrecip (checkbox)
sendship (checkbox)
deliveron (text)
note (text OR textarea)
address1 (text or textarea)
address2 (text or textarea)

You add these as you would any other attribute to the product, but the attribute MUST have these attribute codes. The "for" attribute is used to collect the name of the recipient.

The "foremail" attribute collects the recipient's email address.

The "sendrecip" attribute can be used to prompt the customer to 'send email to recipient after purchase?". If checked, the recipient's email will automatically be sent when the order is completed.

Similarly, the "sendship" attribute is also a checkbox and can be used to prompt the customer to "send email to shipping address after purchase". If checked, the recipient's email will automatically be sent to the "shipping" email address when the order is completed.

The "address1", "address2", and "deliveron" fields can be used to collect a mailing address in case the customer wants to have the certificate mailed to the recipient.

The "deliveron" can be used to collect a date if they customer wants delivery on a specific date (no particular format is required).

The "note" attribute can be used to collect a note from the customer, either to include in the certificate email (represented by the %note% token) or perhaps a note to you.
